Description: Rectangular with two mirrored scrolls on top, a lion’s face between; bas-relief semi-circle edging (sides and bottom); central pilaster with vine scrolling, Corinthian capital, initials on the pedestal; on either side, an arched alcove, each with a halberdier in mid-17th century clothes, their feet pointing to the middle.
Notes: Stylistically similar to the Lenard fireback, the initials also appear on other firebacks from Brede. All known examples of this fireback are poorly modelled and cast.
Copies of this fireback are known.
